Windows Security Warning Box

by ferretmommy / February 28, 2009 4:46 AM PST

This is driving me absolutely nuts, I'm ready to pull my hair out!! Everytime I go to a web site or new web page, the box comes up titled Security Warning, with the message: "The current web page is trying to open a site in your trusted sites list. Do you want to allow this?" I want to disable this somehow, can someone help me PLEASE? I have to click on either the "yes" or red X to close the box multiple times before it will go off the screen.
PLEASE HELP!!

That's not a BUG. That's a FEATURE.

http://windowsxp.mvps.org/ie/zoneelev.htm tells you how to disable it.

Still, I wonder if this is really the same issue. You say it happens "everytime". The above link mentions some very specific conditions.

If the above doesn't help, go into Tools>Internet Options and reset everything you can find in all the tabs to default. Start with the security tab.

If even that doesn't help, try running IE7 in safe mode (that's iexplore -extoff from the command prompt) to see if it's an extension that makes a mess. If so, use Tools>Manage Addons to find out which one.

If this still happens with all settings set to default and no addons at all active, make a new XP user account and try there.

If even that fails, it's time to switch to Firefox.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
